From the messages opposite the beliefnet logo at the top of this page.  Or perhaps it is a different page, who knows for sure.


"The End-Time is Here 2008 was God's last warning, 2012 is economic collapse & WW III www.the-end.com"

This is the
999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999th time that the end of the world has been predicted.   Actually, if they keep making this prediction, I suppose one of these times they will actually be right.   Which reminds me of this scenario which is just a figment of my imagination.   I wrote a commercial for the 649 Lottery up here in Canada and I was given an appointment to share my commercial with the head of the Lottery department, but he threw me out of his office.  My commercial said as follows:

We need 50 million losers.  Please volunteer to be one of them.    
We have nothing to fear except our lack of understanding of fear itself.

It's easier to fool people than it is to convince them they have been fooled.

SKA


Loved your commercial pitch.  Apparently, the Lottery boss you spoke with has no sense of humor?

On a road through a desert in Arizona, a preacher named Nathaniel Evans walked every day, preaching to the many people who roared past in their cars.  "Repent, the End of the World is Nigh!" was his constant theme.


One day, as he was walking, he came to a big lever in the middle of nowhere, just by the side of the road. 'Pull this to end the world' said the sign on it.


Now Nathaniel saw this as the perfect spot for him to preach, and soon many automobiles were parked nearby, the people all swayed by his powerful elocution.


All was well, until there were so many people, and so many cars, that the road was nearly blocked. Then a big 18-wheel rig came down the highway, and couldn't stop in time. The driver had a choice: run over Nathaniel, or run over the Lever.


As the driver explained to the Highway Patrol later, he actually had no choice. Pointing to the red smear on the road that used to be Nathaniel Evans, he said "Better Nate than Lever."

The end is close and the beginning is near.

The best lack all conviction yet the worst are filled with passionate intensity.

Even though I don't drink alcohol, I can't resist the following response to your above message.



Set em up.  I'll have another beer.



or this silly response:



Two men were discussing what they would do if the world was about to come to an end.  The first guy said that he would copulate with anything that moved.   The second guy said that he would do his very best to stand perfectly still.
